Q: Do I have to pay the registration fee up front?
A: YES. The registration fees vary between races and those fees go directly to the race organization, not the A-T Children's Project and are independent of the fundraising minimum.
Q: What if I have already registered and paid my registration fees directly on the official race website, can I still participate and get a fundraising web page?
A: YES. Click the REGISTRATION BUTTON, you will choose the option that says you have already registered and paid the fees directly through the race's site. You will not have to pay the race registration fee twice. The A-T CureTeam registration fee is just $10.
Q: Do I have to pay the fundraising minimum up front?
A: NO. The minimums can be raised by any combination of donations from friends, family, and/or fundraising events by your race's fundraising deadline.
Q: How do I raise money?
A: The quickest and easiest way is your fundraising web page. Personalize your page, email donors directly from your page, thank your donors, check the results of your emails, and keep track of your donations. The private fundraising Link to Success Toolkit provides samples and other fundraising materials free of charge as well as tips. Check out the fundraising home page for information on organizing fun and easy events.
Q: Will donations from matching gift companies count towards my minimum?
A: YES. Any gift received by the fundraising deadline will count towards minimums.
Q: Will my donors get a tax receipt?
A: YES. We are a US 501c3 public charity and a registered charity in Canada. Each online donor will receive an automatic receipt via their email address, and we will provide tax receipts and thank-you letters for donors who send checks.
Q: What if I don't raise the minimum?
A: You are responsible for the raising fundraising minimum by the race's minimum deadline. If you don't raise it by the deadline, the A-T Children's Project will charge your credit card the difference between what you raised and the minimum. You will be notified via email with the amount to be charged and the date it will be charged. EXCEPTION: Hy-Vee Triathlon has no minimums.
Q: How do I get to the race city and where do I stay?
A: You are responsible for your own transporation and lodging (except for $3900 Inclusive Destination Package for The Kauai Marathon/Half Marathon). The A-T Children's Project will have discounted rooms available in some cities, AND once you raise $2000, you are eligible for the A-T Children's Project's Expense Reimbursement Program. See the Expense reimbursement program for details.
Q: Can I still join the A-T CureTeam if I'm not a runner?
A: YES. Come as a Screaming Fan for only a $10 registration fee! You have all the same benefits and requirements of the runners without having to run OR get up early.
